Description

A show about how we make the most of the time we have left. Max Linsky talks to 70 remarkable people, all over the age of 70, not just about their past but their lives right now. These are conversations about the big questions we all ask ourselves, no matter how old we are. What does it mean to live well? What are we still searching for? And how do we learn to let go?

Child of the 60's that I am, I'm loving this and we're only two episodes in. Sister Prejean captivated me, I have listened to the episode four times already. She is teaching me how to be part of the flow. Speaking of flow, I hope Krista Tippet or Terry Gross do not listen to 70 Over 70, they might pick up on the concept of playing ads right in the middle of the program and worse, Max reads the ads. So you're going along in the program, in the flow, and then BAM(!), your canoe is crosswise in the current. That's my only pet peave. Otherwise this program has tremendous promise.
